Welcome to the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Nutrition Webinar Series.
Since 2010, the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Nutrition has pursued applied research to support the goals of the U.S. Government’s Feed the Future initiative, built institutional capacity for analysis and evidence-based policy in developing countries, and offered scholarships to support individual capacity development through formal degree education in the United States and elsewhere. Join the Innovation Lab for Nutrition and USAID Advancing Nutrition for a webinar series to hear about the project's research, results, and learning to inform future programming.
Designed to inform and engage stakeholders, this series will cover research conducted by the Innovation Lab for Nutrition and its stakeholders over the past ten years. During each webinar, panelists will present findings from their research, discuss policy implications of these findings, discuss what needs to be done to better link research to practice, and identify research gaps for future consideration.
Stay tuned for upcoming webinars. View previous webinar content below.
In Bangladesh, the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Nutrition's focus is on aquaculture programming, linked in various ways to horticulture promotion, innovations in drying and storage of products, and behavior change communication. Located in the Feed the Future zone of Bangladesh (the South-West), the Innovation Lab for Nutrition works closely with local academic institutions, international partners (such as IFPRI), and implementing organizations (such as SPRING) to generate strong empirical evidence of how food choices are made, how diets change, and what impacts are possible on nutrition.
This webinar covered the Innovation Lab for Nutrition's research, findings, and innovative technologies in Bangladesh. Speakers explained how their efforts will contribute to a shared research agenda that will ultimately inform policy and programming within the context of USAID and globally.
